Where To Find Saucy Shakshuka in Portland

Cast-irons filled with baked eggs and stewed tomatoes

Shakshuka at Little Griddle
| Nick Woo/EPDX

Few brunch dishes are as comforting as shakshuka, the baked egg and spiced tomato-based stew with Middle Eastern origins. Cold Portland mornings can easily be warmed by slicing through a runny yolk and swiping a piece of bread into jammy stews. While this dish may not be quite as prevalent as eggs Benedict, a good one can be found not too far away.

This map includes brunch staples like Tasty N Daughters, a vegan Israeli spot, a family-friendly Lebanese restaurant, and a small neighborhood breakfast destination.

The points on this map guide are not ranked but organized geographically.

The cozy, 25-seat brunch spot in Beaumont serves lots of vegetarian-friendly fare — biscuits and gravy, polenta with collard greens — but the shakshuka served in a skillet with a side salad is a real gem. Topped with two poached eggs and turmeric feta, a base of savory and slightly spicy tomatoes, peppers, and onions provide an extremely satisfying topping to crispy grilled bread.

The shakshuka at this Northwest Mediterranean-inspired cocktail spot is available on the small plate menu, offered at a slightly lower price during social hour. Adorned with paprika-scented Basque-style chorizo and melty feta, this saucy tomato dish comes out piping hot and is accompanied by several baguette slices for dunking.

3. Ya Hala Lebanese Cuisine

The eclectic brunch menu at Montavilla’s Lebanese spot Ya Hala may have dishes like house-smoked lamb bacon and eggs and a tzatziki-sauced burger, but it also has a steaming hot, tangy shakshuka. Baked eggs swim in stewed tomatoes, fennel, and mild chili peppers, topped with slightly melty feta and chopped fresh mint. A fluffy pillow-like pita bread helps soak up that stewed sauce.

With two locations and a third on the way, John Gorham’s Shalom Y’all is slowly spreading the shakshuka gospel on both sides of the river. While the Shakshuka Royale is the red, spiced tomato and peppers stew most recognize, a second greener variation called the Shakshuka Yeruka accompanies the baked eggs with braised greens, turmeric, and radish. Both come with very necessary bread.

Available at both Tasty restaurants, the shakshuka at Tasty N Daughters is a throwback to co-owner Ron Avni’s time growing up in Israel. Slowly roasted tomatoes and both green and red bell peppers cook with smoked paprika and sun-dried chili, which cradle the eggs as the dish arrives at the table. Grilled bread placed upright in the dish helps customers dig in.

6. Aviv

At the Division vegan-Israeli spot Aviv, the backbone of the shakshuka is bright, herb-roasted tomatoes. Accompanied by a warm, tender bread roll, this dish oozes with fresh bell peppers and scents of paprika. The bowl comes with a savory misozuke egg and creamy vegan labneh, The shakshuka is only available only as a brunch item on the weekends.

Opened just last year, the 22-seat Communion Bakehouse in Westmoreland has already garnered some attention. This shakshuka features a saucy tomato base and chunks of salty cheese crumbles, while the runny poached eggs are a stellar accompaniment to two slices of crunchy grilled bread.

From a little food cart in the Cartlandia pod on SE 82nd, La Camel serves a Moroccan kefta and eggs tagine, savory beef meatballs in a tomato and onion shakshuka. Served with olives, free-range eggs, and rice, it can be a mess in the box, but when the sauce mixes over each grain, it’s ugly delicious.
